be residents of san francisco. >> -- >> i believe the mayor's office, because of the scope and nature, it will not be city staff as was the case the oversight board given the nature of the approval of bonds, land use at the time, three of those seats were filled by department heads; in this case the mayor's office is committed to diversity and being responsive to stakeholders in those communities. the appointments have not been made. >> i was trying to understand -- >> i think they will be real people.
1:01 pm
>> it seems a little bit redundant. i don't get that. >> it to function of state law, this redundancy. >> the reason for this new commission is that state law requires a system where there is a function separate from government. >> for all intents and purposes, it is still government. >> we are faced with this strange, new lab, to have a separate entity, and we have to set up something to oversee that function. >> at the end of the data still the city's agency, and the city making the appointment and i don't get it. i guess it is not for me to get. >> state law. we are trying to live within the four corners here. >> thank you for your report. i have a couple of questions. under redevelopment, 80% of the tax increment was
1:02 pm
to flow back into the redevelopment area. with the dissolution, we were told that absent any substitute agencies this money would flow into the general fund of the city or county; in our case the city and county of san francisco. under successor agency, with a redevelopment funds or criminal tax funds clawback of the area or to the general fund? >> the answer is yes and yes. anything with the tax increment, 60% infrastructure, -- down the line to the district.
1:03 pm
in those areas funds do flow pursuant to the contract in place to the taxing entities, in the format described, 80-20%. -- it requires an increment in infrastructure to make it happen. 100% of 0 is 0. once development happens, we are looking at changes to state law to try to capture the increment and the upfront investment required to make that kind of brownfield site go. and flow through the general fund. all things considered obligated, they have underlying contracts; if for some reason the tax increment would flow to that obligation or contract and when paid off like a bankruptcy is done and it can flow to the normal distribution.
1:04 pm
over time as the debt is paid off, outstanding bonds, other uses pursuant to the contract of the surviving areas, it would be under the normal distribution. hierva buena is one, golden gateway is another; obligations until the contract is complete. >> where there is a contract and money to flow it will flow to the same manner; and new funds will flow to the general fund once there is something to flow. the corollary to that is part of prop c is capture of redevelopment funds for specific housing. with these funds like golden gateway or hierva buena, who finish their funding with
1:05 pm
infrastructure and housing within the area, or would that money be taken out of project contracted? >> your absolutely right. there are outstanding bonds that you described; as those get paid off the delta between those as part of the capture. >> this is changing nothing in regard to prop c. this is dealing with pose redevelopment money. for lack of a better term, redevelopment areas. my second question, members of the commission for the successor agency, are they it will? are they term appointments or indefiniete?
1:06 pm
>> they are staggered appointments. each of the members will serve for a term of four years at the pleasure of the mayor without compensation or reimbursement. >> they are terms, but at the pleasure the mayor. presumably that those areas that did not reach the status of the development such as treasure island, would be able to be infrastructure finance districts; the successor only deals with those areas that were already established as redevelopment? >> yes that is correct. >> my final question is, what oversight of the planning commission have on these areas? we used to have design oversight to some degree. we obviously have oversight
1:07 pm
over on adjoining areas even with presidio and others in terms of transportation and impact of traffic. >> are there any amendments for those design developments, would come to this commission. to the extent that any of these areas have applications that come to this commission we have established agreements with the department for review not only the horizontal infrastructure of the design of buildings; there is a process of each of these areas has for the planning staff and commission. >> thanks for the presentation. [indiscernible]
1:08 pm
those projects may not have happened without redevelopment. it will be interesting to hear how it's going to work. there was talk when the governor was proposing to eliminate redevelopment about some successor -- not the successor agency -- but some ability for cities and counties to take advantage of some of the tools like infrastructure finance district, are we seeing that at the state level? >> certainly at the legislature there were two infrastructure proposals -- steinberg using existing redevelopment law, but with a smaller tool, not taking the school share. the governor vetoed those bills on saturday. his rationale was he wanted
1:09 pm
cities and counties to focus is winding down and up the dissolution law. we are hopeful that we will take another run at the next legislative cycle; it was not time yet in the governor's view, but there was another support for another finance tool that was much more narrow. >> thank you for the clarity of your presentation particularly with such rapidfire in such short time. actually in your last round of answers you did already touched on the question i had , with the end of redevelopment we lost a large number of planners and designers; you answer that planning under specific assignment will continue the legacy
1:10 pm
particularly because we do not have redevelopment laws that govern the physical outcome which means that many of these projects have to be transition to the actual codes and district in which they occur. is that a correct interpretation? >> if the underlining zoning in each of these large plan areas does not have the appropriate sud or planning code then yes, prior to expiration of these areas, planning staff engage in a process where they would be a rezoning of sorts. >> in the three large areas that the successor agency still has jurisdiction over, zoning would be the same as it was. the zoning is still in place. redevelopment plans are still in place. outside of those areas it does revert to the department. >> what i am interested in is
1:11 pm
to see redevelopment switching into institutional memory of the planning staff, that is my interest and questions i'm posing. the second part of what i'm saying is for example, implied update of institutional master plan such as ucs were to occur under thef watchful eye of the planning department. >> they are exempt from our normal entitlement. >> under redevelopment -- >> i don't believe that is correct. >> state agencies are exempt.
1:12 pm
but there are other mechanisms whether contractual, the private party within ucsf, the planning staff in the successor agency staff are working with ucsf, what is your plan? how do you expect will forward? how does this relate to existing zoning? >> i am comfortable with the checks and balance based in your presentation. >> commissioner -- >> i guess for the benefit of the public, treasure island has not been mentioned. commissioner -- mentioned it but it is not among the successor board and successor commission's jurisdiction because they have a separate redevelopment. or what has happened with that?
1:13 pm
>> treasure island is redevelopment with a small " r". in light of this uncertainty, in 2011, the governor signed it into law, june 28, 2011, the mayor's office team, working with the development partner -- this is uncertain. it looks like the governor will abolish the development but there is another tool, infrastructure district. >> thank you commissioners, appreciate your time today. >> that will conclude item 5,

1:21 pm
i don't remember what it was. >> it had to do with a date on when the clock should start. the project sponsor suggest another time. people don't get final certificate of occupancy; i suggested a temporary certificate of occupancy. whoever made the motion incorporated that into it. >> is that in here? >> it was not included as a specific condition of approval. if you like to do that i can do that. >> yes. >> the maker of a motion is amending the motion to make
